Published November 18, 2005

Twenty-nine states have enacted legislation to address or restrict the use of mercury in a wide array of products including electronic products, thermometers, mercury switches, batteries, packaging, and other products. The laws range from bans on sale and distribution of certain products to labeling and other reporting obligations. EIA has prepared a matrix of these Mercury-Containing Product Laws in the United States, and version 1.0 of the matrix is posted on EIATRACK. A link to the matrix is provided below.

A related matrix is also available on EIATrack that summarizes additional mercury legislation that is under consideration by the states. Version 4.0 of the Matrix of Pending Mercury-Containing Product Legislation is currently available.
